Today I am super excited to introduce to you one of our new circular stencils in the Stencils 360°TM series, called the Abstract Butterfly!

Abstract Butterfly Stencils 360°TM

If you are new to our innovative Stencils 360°TM, please head over to our YouTube channel and watch our Intro Video about this awesome tool!

From the image above, you can see there’re 4 circles as the Alignment Marker. Therefore, to achieve its intended design, follow these 3 simple steps:

It’s that simple! But of course, it can be fun to break the rules and explore new looks! And that’s the best thing about this tool! You can achieve so many different looks with just ONE single stencil!

Let’s take a look at what I mean in the next two cards!

Karen ink blended only the larger butterfly on the stencil and rotated her stencil by 60° each time (jumping 2 intervals on the ‘circle’ scale instead of 4). By doing this, she ended up with six butterflies in an array of colors after one full turn!

I love that she used a large canvas and then split it into two; and voilà, she got herself 2 cards! The two sentiments are from the Let’s Meet IRL stamp set.

Next we have Candice’s card. Instead of inking up both butterflies on the stencil, she also chose to ink up the larger butterfly of the two. She used a turning interval of 60° (again jumping 2 cirlces in each turn). I absolutely love the rainbow hue on this card! Notice how the colors blended on her note card also go seamlessly with these pretty butterflies!

She added matching-color gems to finished off her card together with a Happy Birthday sentiment from the Enchanting Paris stamp set.

Finally we have my card! I wanted to show you what it would look like if you did follow the Alignment Marker and rotate your stencil at 120° intervals (ie. jumping 4 intervals each time as shown in my images at the top). And this is what you’d get!

I used two different ink colors from the Catherine Pooler collections, namely Juniper Mist and Green Tea for my blending. I wanted to create a cut-it-up look on my card, so I cut my card into 3 long vertical sections.

I adhered them onto our Navy Blazer cardstock and added a belly band using our Elegant Backwash – Premium Fine Paper, and finished it off with an outline butterfly (die cut from the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies) in Vintage Beetle to go with my stenciled butterflies.

The sentiment “Handmade With Love” was from the Magical Christmas Sentiment stamp set which I white heat embossed onto the Grand Piano cardstock.

That concludes our inspirations for today! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 post and participate in our BLOG + IG GIVEAWAYS! You have until TONIGHT 9:00pm PST to enter. Don’t miss your chances! Winners will be announced on our Blog and on Instagram tomorrow 16 Oct.

As many of you know, we love designing cute and whimsical stamps. And today, we will be showcasing our latest stamp set in this fun category! It is called Let’s Meet IRL! Our team has worked wonders with this set & its coordinating dies, let’s check them out!

Julie created this gorgeous starry background using the Starry Spiral Stencils 360°.

Her main characters are the little brown bears floating in space, adhered to her card with a bit of foam tape for the added dimension. Plus, an adorable alien waving in the corner, super cute!

Karen made her space scene also with the pair of cute bears. I love the beautifully blended background with a touch of purple, blue and yellow hue. This color combination with a splash of white paint really set the space scene wonderfully!

She chose the fun sentiment “Forget Spacebook Messages, Let’s Meet IRL” which I think is a perfect match to the little bears floating towards each other – how adorable!

Last but not least, we have Stefanie‘s creation!

I love these mini-scenes on one slimline! For me, this pastel cyan background gives the card a very calm vibe!

My favourite is the mini-scene on the bottom where the little pug is trying to catch the floating bone! : D So adorable!

Today we are focusing on two more new stamp sets and a coordinating die set which are absolutely ideal for the holiday season! They are the Magical Christmas Sentiments & its coordinating penguin perfect cuts; and the Minimalist Christmas Trees! These sets work seamlessly with each other as you will see from the below examples from our team!

First up we have Karen’s creation! The silver, red and green color combination on white is very festive and it really gives a snowy vibe!

She mixed and match a bunch of different style of the mini-trees together with the different tree toppers. I love all the heat embossing she did which gives the card the added interest!

She used one of the big scripty sentiments from Magical Christmas Sentiments, die cut it using the coordinating die and adhered it with a bit of foam tape for the added dimension!

Next up, how cool is Julie’s card?! I love that her card is a bunch of clever little details all put together. The beautifully colored trees just pop on the beige background! The torn paper effect and a piece die-cut from the Slimline Oriental Cover Die combines to create the most interesting background!

She adhered a big scripty sentiment in white from the Magical Christmas Sentiments together with a contrasting white heat embossed sans serif font on black cardstock which I thought is really cool!

Next we have Stefanie’s inspiration! I love how she created her own patterned paper using the Minimalist Christmas Trees.

I adore the tone on tone look for this card! I love the contrast of having a large sentiment heat embossed in gold on white cardstock, with and a smaller sentiment embossed in white on black cardstock. The gold sequins finished off her card perfectly!

Finally we have Candice’s adorable creation! I just love the fun and cheerful color choices for those mini-christmas trees!

The gold heat embossing really makes the trees pop! She finished off her card with a sweet sentiment and some matching gold color gems for the extra sparkle!

Reveal & Insiprational Chapter Day 3

Spring 2021 New Release – Reveal & Inspirational Chapter – Day 3

Spring 2021 New Release Schedule

Hello and welcome back to Day 3 of our Reveal & Inspirational Chapter. Our new Spring Release can now be Pre-Ordered at www.ppstamps.com! YAYYY!!!!! Grab the FREE GIFT with purchase of 80CAD+/65USD+! This key chain is super adorable and features one of our favourite characters from the Rabbit Café stamp set! So take advantage of this awesome deal while supplies last!

Please continue to visit our blog this week for some fun and awesome projects from our talented Creative Team and myself. Today we have 3 more new stand-alone dies to showcase! If you missed our Day 1 Intro + GIVEAWAY, make sure you click HERE for chances to win!

First we have the Twist-N-Pop Surprise stand-alone die! This set is super versatile and is perfect for creating greeting cards for various occasions.   This set comes with a polaroid frame and a backing panel of the same size. The width of these match perfectly to the centre tab on the die-cut base. The frame pop-ups as you twist on one side of the base.  

Gladys made a colorful card using this Twist-N-Pop Surprise stand-alone die. I love how she created these beach scenes! She decorated both sides of her pop-up piece using two polaroid frames and same adorable images from the Aloha Hawaii stamps set! How fun are these punny sentiments! She then cut out some bright patterned paper with the decorative panel die cut. The base of the card was cut with our new Vintage Beetle cardstock.

The best thing about this card is that it folds flat for mailing and it fits into a 6 x 6″ square envelope! The recipient will open up the card by flipping it on one side as centre piece pops up!

Another great thing about this die set is that this pop-up mechanism will work with any centre piece that you want to add to the card. You can therefore interchange the polaroid frame with another element, such as the I Made You A Cake stand-alone die to create a one of a kind birthday surprise! That’s what I did the example below.

II used Fashion Week to cut out my card base. I made two exact same 2-tier birthday cakes and adhere them on each side of the centre tab of the base. I then stamped out two sentiment from the It’s Your Day stamp set onto the sentiment tab die-cut pieces.

For my second card, I used the polaroid frames and created two different scenes using Aloha Hawaii stamps set & coordinating dies. I used Apple Green cardstock for my decorative panels. Watch my step-by-step tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!

The last product we want to showcase today is called the Gingerbread Man Gift Display! I really adore this die cut as it gives you so many options! This set includes not only the dies you need to create the most adorable gingerbread man, it also has all the accessory die cuts necessary to further turn it into earrings or necklace holder display, or an EOS lip balm holder.  It even includes a mini pocket die cut!

In my first example, I turned the cute gingerebread man into an EOS lip balm holder. The circular die in the set easily makes it a perfect fit!

For my second gingerbread man, I used the slit die cut to create a display holder for a necklace. I also glued the mini pocket onto the back of the gingerbread man to help store the necklace.

In my last example, I used the customized double U-shaped die cut and turned my gingerbread man into a pair of earrings display card! This set is super fun and will turn a simple gift into something handmade-special while bringing a smile to the recipient’s face!

That concludes our inspirations for today! I truly hope you’ve enjoyed today’s showcase of stand-alone dies, Twist-N-Pop, I Made You A Cake and Gingerbread Man Gift Display! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 Post and participate in our GIVEAWAYS!  You have until 26 Mar 11:59pm PST to enter.  We really hope you will play along with us! Winners will be announced on our Blog and on Instagram on 27 Mar!

Now let’s get to the rest of the “Around The World” collection of stamps! First we have Enchanting Paris! The French capital is one of the most romantic cities in Europe! Let this stamp set be your inspiration for building a romantic scene! The adorable poodle and the landmarks are just irresistible!

Sidewalk Scene Builder Penguin Perfect Cuts

How adorable is Gladys’s soft-toned slimline card! I love her color choices for the scene, it’s so dreamy! To set the scene, she used the Sidewalk Scene builder Penguin Perfect Cuts for the lower portion of the card. This die cut is really handy for creating street scenes and is a must-have in your craft room! The stamped images were nicely laid out across the panel that was die cut from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone die. Notice the little cut-out details that the garden bench die cut give? She finished off her card with a sweet sentiment!

Ashley created a romantic snowy scene birthday card with this set. She also used the Sidewalk Scene builder Penguin Perfect Cuts to set the scene. I love how she ink-blended it slightly at the bottom with Distress Oxide ink in Tea Dye and that she added a strip of bright green cardstock above it for the pop of color! I’m loving the snowy background! Her images were all arranged onto a slimline card base (3.5×8.5 inches) die cut from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone die. To finish off, she scattered some sequins for the extra sparkle!

Next on our list is the Beautiful Africa set! If you love creating with critters you’re going to fall in love with this set as it’s got some of the cutest animals!

Stephanie has created this fun scene of the safari! The wavy slope was die cut from Desert Landscape Scene builder and splattered with Distress Ink in Ground Espresso. I love the sentiment in this set “Time to soak up the sun” which is super versatile! I love how she gave the little girl and the lion matching color outfits which even coordinate with the color of the jeep! It’s like a little team of safari explorers! And how adorable are the giraffe and the elephant!

Candice used a simple masking technique where she cut a circle from a piece of copy paper and taped it down to her card panel. Next, she used the stamps from the Beautiful Africa set to build her scene directly on the panel for a one-layer card! I love the way she overlaid the images one by one to create depths, so beautifully done!! After stamping out her scene she colored them all with Copics. I just love the colorful scene which really pops over the white background!

Finally I’d like to introduce the Aloha Hawaii stamps set & coordinating dies! This set has some of the cutest images ever! You can create so many different scenes with this set!

Allison made a bright portrait slimline. She cut out her beige panel using the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab die. She also cut out three frames using the Polaroid die cut from the Twist-N-Pop stand-alone die to house her fun images! What a clever way to use this die! Her card is so bright & colorful and full of positive energy!

That concludes our inspirations for today! I know you’re agree that these are some wonderful projects from the talented artists!
